Music of the spheres

erasure of a page from Samuel Pepys' diary

[I book a passage in
a woman’s belly to
the moon. We hear
music through the ceiling,
stories of comedies,
the names of the hanged.]

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Saturday 18 February 1659/60 (with the censored passage added back in).
